DON's Deal: Magic Castle Recap and Storing Nail Polish

Hello dolls!
The Magic Castle was so freaking fun, I had the best time! No photos are allowed inside so I can't share what I saw, but imagine the entrance to Haunted Mansion from Disneyland and you're on the right track. To enter, you walk up to a bookshelf and say "Abracadabra," at which point it swings open to let you in. You can wander up and down staircases, through parlors and bars, and find magic shows in various rooms which are first come first serve.  As soon we were lined up for the first show, extremely stiff cocktails in hand, I felt a hand on my shoulder and turned to find Jenna Fisher (The Office) asking if this show really was all full. We chatted briefly and she looked amazing in a long periwinkle maxi dress and white blazer (and super preggo). We kept crossing paths throughout the night. The magicians were really fun and charming, and we left laughing the whole ride home!

Now on to the organization post you girls requested. This week's topic: Nail Polish and Care Products!

DON's Deal: Illusions Michael

Tonight, I'm going someplace magical. There will be plenty of, in the words of GOB Bluth, "Illusions, Michael. Tricks are what whores do for money." 
I'm going to the Magic Castle. This is a private clubhouse on a hill in Hollywood for people seriously committed to the preservation and display of magic. Formal wear is required and there is a sit down dinner while shows are performed. We have a reservation in the Parlor of Prestidigitation. And I can barely write this without cracking up laughing already.  But when you have access to something this unique, you have to go, right?
As long as they don't ask me to partake in audience participation, this should be a night to remember. After having a "cat" climb up in my face during Cats the Musical, I have a long standing fear of both sitting on the aisle and being forced into a show.  Just let me sip my cocktails in peace while you saw that girl in half, thanks!

Magical Fairy Kisses,
D.O.N.
